Hey, AR! So your new motto is, "Let the words be yours I'm done with mine?"

I know what you mean about puzzling out time signatures. Even Estimated Prophet isn't really in 7-beat time for most of the jam, but more like 14-beats (8 followed by 6). But in most performances (well, 1977 anyway) you can hear Bobby counting 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 leading right up to the first downbeat.

Lou: yeah, I know, it was a rather weak hijack on my part. ..my favorite "counting" is when Weir would count-down backwards ...and then stop at "four!"

..nice motto, but I'm sticking with my original, "If It Grows, Let It Flow!."

5...4...3... -- Later.
